All candidates should have completed at least 2 years of Internal Medicine training in an ACGME-accredited program in the United States. This includes international medical graduates (IMG), who generally must have completed an ACGME-accredited residency program in the United States. ECFMG certification and a completed ERAS file are necessary to apply. Applicants are expected to be Internal Medicine board-eligible at the beginning of their first fellowship year, and they are expected to complete the requirements for board certification within the first months of joining the fellowship.
Non-US citizens who are entering a BWH ACGME accredited training program are required to obtain visa sponsorship prior to beginning their program. The Department of Medicine sponsors J-1 and H-1B visas.
